Is there a method for applying a decal on the boat without getting bubbles (and without having to re-apply them 57 times) ?

Use a water with a small amount of soap in it. Wet the area with a fine mist spray bottle. Place sticker where you want it an squeegie out the water.

X2. Used this technique many times...it's counter intuitive to apply an adhesive decal to a wet, soappy surface, but it works!

Check out this video on YouTube:
